nhsblogdoc retires from blogging

It is with great sadness that I note that Dr John Crippen aka nhsblogdoc has decided to stop blogging, and furthermore remove all of his previous posts.

He has been a major force in medical blogging, and inspired me to begin blogging in the first place. Numerous posts by me have been stimulated by his lead.
It is certainly the end of an era, and I am especially sad that I have only noticed this fact 3 months down the track due to my inability to keep up with the medical blogging scene.

The impact of his blogging is reflected by the farewells that he has received, and I humbly add myself to the list of bloggers sorry to see him go.
Sadly, there are those that are happy to see him gone:
But he lives on, even if only in the faint memories of the internet:
Dr Crippen - hopefully we will see you reappear, either as yourself, as a new identity, or if nothing else then in the memory of those who continue to blog, and may our influence and spirit continue to guide us to incisive, critical, entertaining and humorous medical blogging.

Amen to this.

I don't know if there is anyone else angry enough around to substitute though! :P
